Landbierparadies (was: Nuremberg on way home)

    German plurals...back when I was in school, I asked my classmates: If you could change one thing about German to make it easier or whatever, what would it be? For me, it was the plurals. How plurals are formed is somewhat less regulated by rules than other common aspects of the language. Sometimes an umlaut, sometimes not; sometimes an "-en" ending, sometimes not; sometimes no change at all...anyway. (Haus -> Haeuser) 

You're right about Nuernberg -- why aren't there more good taverns for a city of its size?

I first got really familiar with the word "Eckkneipe" back during the Rauchverbot wars. Berlin still allows smoking in Eckkneipen, places under 75 sq metres or so. The argument was smoking should remain allowed in corner bars, but banned in more family-ish or food led places.

Landbierparadies...there was one that closed that actually had great character. I forget which one it was. It seemed like it had been a gold old tavern before that.

Yes, we had some bad luck with the Fassbier that day. I had had more good luck previously, running into Hetzelsdorfer or others of similar calibre.
